The U.S. government flatly denies it engages in torture. In December 2005, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice stated, "The U.S. does not permit or condone torture...or transport detainees from one country to another for the purpose of torture." She added, "where appropriate, the U.S. seeks assurances that transferred persons will not be tortured."
Mounting evidence, however, suggests the contrary. Indeed, in the "global war on terror," torture is very much on the table. Amnesty International, the Council of Europe and Human Rights Watch describe case after case of terror suspects held incommunicado in secret detention centers, tortured, and kept out of the reach of the International Red Cross, lawyers or human rights groups. The United Nations human rights panel is also convinced of the abuses and demanded in July that the U S. close its secret prisons.

How, by your silence on 99.9999999999999999999% to the 50th or 60th power of expressed thoughts in the world, even those in foreign languages you may not understand, can you hold so many positions at once?

Is it within you to understand that some "truths are self-evident" and do not require ratification from you or anyone else?
